Soria flight of 520 km

The flight of Soria (520 km) is essential for the yearling to end with a final flight of 1000 km.

Therefore, the importance of choosing good climatology for the release of that day is very important.

Another thing is that the forecasts are met or not.

The day dawned clean and cool, but where we got off and about 10  the thing started to be different.
The forecast was, the weak winds of 7 to 11 km of tail during almost all the way, clouds and clearings and a maximum of 27º.
The reality was that the weak winds from 7 to 11, but of face, with white clouds that despite not being of water, they created a humid and hot environment, raising the maximum 4º higher than expected, officially arriving at 31º

The pigeons had a comfortable and cool transport and, since the water was put, only a pigeon, take out the head and submerge its peak.

At 04:00 a.m. we were ready at the point of liberation, at 06:00 we put water and at 07:30 am estimated time, we released them.

Today, after the experience I had, I regret not having released them 30 minutes earlier, because as we see in the list of arrivals, they arrived just with the central hours of the heat of the day and with 30 minutes more of fresh, surely would have contributed to get a slightly higher percentage, which we would all have liked to all.

As the flight progressed is hardening, with it, only the good preparation received, It would be a decisive to obtain a decent percentage, being at this moment of 82.27%. Without discarding what in the coming days and until the end of the month, we can reach 87%.

But there is nothing wrong, that not come right, since this hardening get greater effort and greater value of survival, essential values for pigeons what with only 12 to 14 months they will go with a guarantee still higher to the 1000km.
Therefore, lucky for those who still have pigeons by arrive.

Note: At home adults get a 85'97% and the Yerling a 76'78%
